    I am thinking about dropping out of 2nd year currently in first semester to do different but similar degree starting from 1st year. Is that something thats possible still, can anybody provide me any advice in this situation?

    I struggle with pretty much every aspect of my degree and hardly understand anything. 1st year was okay even though I had changing course in my mind throughout year one cause I still struggled.

    I though I might as well stick with it since I passed and almost got 2.1 and see how it goes, but 2nd year is completely another level. I feel like I should of changed the course when I could but its bit late now.

    Im thinking of going from Computer Science to Business Information Systems. Similar concept just including business related modules. I just don't see myself in a programming job for the rest of my life.

    speak your university as they might let you transfer if there's that many common modules.
